Clelin Ferrell: Bryant "clearly" better than Lawrence in spring practices
“Maybe he didn’t play as well as Trevor in the spring game and whatnot, but Kelly clearly was the better quarterback as far as the whole spring as a whole,” Ferrell said at the ACC Kickoff on Thursday afternoon. “Trevor showed some great things in the spring, but it was just a mental jump that he had to make, and he did have some struggles that a lot of people don’t really see."
Ferrell said Bryant's knowledge of the system and his experience gave him the edge over the freshmen quarterback.
“I feel like Kelly was definitely still the more ready quarterback after the end of the spring. Definitely,” Ferrell said. “He’s a senior obviously. He has more trust in his teammates. He just knew the system. And obviously, he showed his skill and his talent through his ability to run. He’s worked really hard. The passing game went very well for him this spring. He just looked comfortable. Everything flowed smoothly with him. It went really, really well for him this spring. I was really happy.”
Despite some fans calling for Lawrence to start, Bryant takes it all in stride and has the whole team behind him.
"He is always in good spirits. That's just who Kelly is...He understands playing quarterback here, there is a lot that comes with it good and bad," Ferrell said. "The biggest thing with him is just staying even keel and not listening to what the media has to say.
“The whole team is behind him. No question. That’s our guy,” he said. “Unless the coaches say otherwise, Kelly’s our guy.”
